Business Problem

Previous development company was slow, with poor communication.

Solution

Improved communication by regular onsite meetings,  and improved project management.

Outcome

Turn around time for new features was greatly reduced, allowing Opteon to become one of the market leaders in property valuations. 

Background

The application was originally developed by another development company based in Sydney. The management of Opteon were becoming frustrated with the lack of progress, and the poor communication with their previous Vendor.

Solution

By sitting down with the directors of Addisons, and talking about the current solution it quickly became apparent that the problem was due to the communication between themselves and their current vendor.

For every new feature request and bug fix there were lengthy emails going back and forth, which resulted in a lot of misunderstandings and re-works. Emails are not an affective medium for managing projects.

CoSource proposed that a developer work with them 2 days per week at their office. This achieved two things:

  • They could budget their costs.
  • The turnaround time for features and bug fixes was a lot quicker, as by working on site the communication barrier was removed.
